The Road to Bedlam - Mike Shevdon I wish I liked this more. I think I read it out of stubbornness because I read the first book. Like that one, there are some very cool concepts and moments, but in between, there is quite a bit of time spent on things that do not advance the plot as much as they should. For example, the protagonist is desperate about the situation with his daughter (omitted for potential spoiler-hood), but the urgency doesn't come through for hundreds of pages until that story picks back up.
